I recently read an interesting article on power which referred to a research paper on what happens when people gain power(I don't have the article or paper to hand).

The paper was exploring the hypothesis that when people gained power they acted in dictatorial ways not because they wanted to control others but because they wanted control over their own freedom.
I thought it was a very interesting angle on power and it did seem to make sense.

Shutting down debate is nothing new.
The Spanish Inquisition were fairly good at that, after all nobody expects the Spanish Inqusition...
